The CodeCraft Micro Conference Wednesday - "Engineering Machine Learning with Spark" by Liz Hurley, and "Programming Robots with Visuino" by me :-)

Wednesday evening I had a chance to join the great CodeCraft Micro Conference.
CodeCraft if organized typically once a month by CJ Affiliate in the form of open conference. I have attended few of the events in the past, and even presented couple of times.
In this event, the main presentation was "Engineering Machine Learning with Spark" by Liz Hurley .
The presentation was very good and informative. Liz did a great job introducing Spark, and making a live presentation of doing Wikipedia articles clustering with Machine Learning using Spark.
After her presentation, I was given the opportunity to show some of my robots programmed with Visuino, and also to show the code controlling the robots.
Here are some pictures of the event:

And Explaining the Visuino design:

The evening ended with few more lighting talks, including "Building apps with AWS" (using Amazon Lambdas) by Mircea N:

This was yet another great CodeCraft event, and I enjoyed it a lot. I will try my best to attend more of the vents this year if my usual work overload allows me. 
I greatly recommend CodeCraft to anyone that can join!
